Great thanks. I'm not afraid of OCing, so I should be fine! So apart from the difference in clockspeeds, what's the difference in architecture of the Optie 144 and 3700+ core? Which is better when running at the same speed? I know the Opteron only uses 67W as opposed to the 3700+ that uses 89W but that propably goes out the door when you start OCing anyway!
Also, I am planning on getting the DFI Lanparty UT Ultra NF3, since I bought this REALY REALY REALY expensive 7800GS, and as such, do not want to move over to PCI-e now. I'm basically selling the PC I'm on now, to fund my new purchases. Its only a Athlon 1200MHz, with 768MB SDRAM, and a 40Gig HDD, so selling it will only cover a part of the new Mobo and CPU. Is the DFI good for a OCing S939/AGP Mobo, or are there known problems with it? While its not really futureproof, I would rather get this than the ASRock AGP/PCI-e Mobo, cause I understand it's pretty $hitty at overclocking! I'll worry about the future once I run into a brick wall! Or are there better S939/AGP OCing Mobos I should rather look into?
Thanks for your expert advice and opinions guys!
